    What is BackgroundCheck.co?

    BackgroundCheck.co is a data broker website that specializes in people search and background check information.

    It offers the ability to access public records and a variety of contact information for both individuals in their database.

    Because it focuses more specifically on background check information, including arrest and court records, the data on this site is much more sensitive than other more generalized data brokers.

    Due to the obvious reputation and privacy concerns, some users choose to remove their information from data broker sites like BackgroundCheck.co.

    BackgroundCheck.co gathers its data from a wide range of sources, including public records, other data brokers, government entities, the internet, and other sources.

    Why you should remove your information from BackgroundCheck.co

    Data brokers like BackgroundCheck.co gather and sell personal data, often without explicit consent, leading to unwanted marketing and potential inaccuracies in the information available about you online.

    Having your personal details publicly accessible can increase risks such as identity theft, doxxing, stalking, and other forms of harassment, both online and physically.

    These platforms often sell ads to companies who purposely use language that can imply legal troubles, such as court or arrest records, even if you don’t have any.

    Ultimately, it’s about having control over your own information. It’s your right to decide who has access to your details and for what purpose.

    Removing your info from data brokers is a way to regain some of that control over your digital footprint and online privacy.

    What kind of information is available on BackgroundCheck.co?

    BackgroundCheck.co primarily functions as a data broker providing detailed arrest and background report information. The data they compile and make available includes, but is not limited to:

    • First Name
    • Middle Name
    • Last Name
    • Race
    • Age
    • Addresses
    • Phone Numbers
    • Aliases
    • Associates
    • Criminal Records
    • Sex Offender Data
    • Court Records
    • Mugshots
    • Traffic Tickets
    • Vital Records

    How did BackgroundCheck.co get my information?

    Sites like BackgroundCheck.co acquire data from various sources, combining public records with purchased private data.

    • Public records: These include voter registrations, property deeds, court records, and marriage licenses.
    • Business records: Information from business operations is also accessible and aggregated by these platforms.
    • Credit Bureaus and Financial Institutions: They provide basic personal details under certain circumstances, though not direct credit histories.
    • Telecom Companies: Subscriber lists are used to develop databases of phone numbers and addresses.
    • Social Media and Online Sources: Public data from social networks and platforms like LinkedIn is harvested.
    • Third-party Data Brokers: They may purchase additional personal data from specialized brokers.
     

    A lot of this information is what you might not realize you’re giving away when you sign up for things online. That information, depending on how it is collected, can be bought and sold in bulk. This is kind of like a less malicious version of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
